Well done to those star performing Karaoke singers at Parkhill for raising all that money for a very good cause!
Many clubs are raising money for causes all over the world and they should also be acknowledged for the good they do. It's part of what clubs and their members just do naturally... another reason why we should fight to keep our clubs alive.

Karaoke Singers Hit the Right Notes

Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice benefits from CD sale proceeds.


Following in the remarkable traditions of charity fund raising by social clubs, members of Parkhill Social Club in Firbeck have rallied to the cause of Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Some of the quite talented karaoke singers in the club pooled their skills a few months ago and produced a charity CD. Sales of the CD have proved to be very successful and actually exceeded everyone's expectations.

A presentation evening was held on Saturday evening 7th August 2010 when cheques were presented to representatives from the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. The total amount passed over by Maurice and the gang was over £1,600!!! Of this some £620 was from the club's karaoke singers CD with a further £990 attributed to Aughton FC.

The whole evening proved to be very enjoyable for all involved with some of the star vocalists giving renditions of popular songs!

Pictures of the event are courtesy of Rob McCartney. It is hoped that more photos will be shown on the club website in due course.

If you would like to see live performances by the karaoke crew they can be found performing in the club every Thursday and Saturday evening.
